Kaltura Event Registration Administrator's Guide

This guide is intended for KMC and KMS administrators.

The Event Registration feature allows admins to configure a registration form that safeguards the video content to be shown only to users that have registered, be it Live or VOD. This article describes how to configure a Registration Form.

Registration forms may be configured for the following types of entries:

  • Webcast
  • Live
  • VOD
  • Quiz

The Registration Form is set up in the Kaltura Management Console as a Custom Data Schema. The schema contains the fields for the registrant to complete. 

In Kaltura MediaSpace, the Admin will select the Settings option and then the Custom Data tab. The schemas found in the Custom Data tab are essentially registration forms as long as they are configured on the user-entry option. Explanation for the user-entry will follow. Multiple registration forms can be made available per KMS instance. 

Configure the Registration Form(s) in the KMC

  1. Login to the KMC.
  2. Go to Settings and select the Custom Data tab.
  3. Click Add Custom Schema to add a schema.
  4. Enter the Custom Schema Title and a Description.
  5. Select User Entry to ensure that that the custom data schema that is created will be available in the Registration module. You may create as many registration forms as you need. 
  6. Add the custom fields. The supported field types are: Input Field, Drop List. Each field that is added has two additional configurations:
    1. Required - require the user to fill in that field and will not allow them to submit the form otherwise
    2. Hidden - hide the field from rendering in the registration form. You might want to use this option for a field you aren't sure that you want to use thus allowing you to show/hide the field on demand without the need of replacing the form
  7. The default fields for the registration form that is included in the Registration module are:
    1. First Name 
    2. Last Name
    3. State 
    4. Country
      For more information on how to add or edit custom data see Custom Data.
